Why not try the Charity Run? This 5km race is for mums and dads, grandparents, families and teenagers all in the name of a good cause. Everybody can manage 5km with little help from their loved ones!
For the more serious runners there is the 10k City run, the Relay Run and the half marathon all happening on Sunday.
